to the rest of the world, if you look at germany, uk, japan, france, all of whom have very strong gun regulations, we have more gun deaths in one week than they have in an entire year, and the incidents -- the number of times in which guns inside a home are used for self-defense are exceedingly small, on the order of maybe 1 in 15, 1 in 20 as compared to the number of times when a gun is used either for suicide or a homicide. anybody that looks at the data here is quite clear that on the whole, particularly things like assault weapons, create far, far more kor nage in th carnage in this country than they prevent. to a large extent the reason why i think progressives have not been able to mount an effective campaign for sensible gun laws, it's been a failure of the progressive movement, and i think that will now change with progressives. they must realize they have to make this an election issue. all of the polls show that the public is widely in favor of sensible gun regulations. i will point out what i said on friday. president clinton after columbine when we were meeting in the oval

in a number of european, in japan and a number of other locations we have had in japan an individual went in with a knife and started stabbing people. this was somebody with a severe mental illness. we don't know what we have here. we don't know if in fact the principal was a victim of this believed shooter. we don't zero if this is something that related to the school. something outside of the school. but there seems to be a profile when we see most of these shootings, though, chris, it's someone who's angry, who's frustrated, who's rageful and who blames others for problems that they have in life and unfortunately, believe that they have almost a right to go and take out their anger and frustration and rage against another person. years ago we thought children they needed to get under their desks and hide because we were afraid of a nuclear threat from russia. now we have to teach children in kindergarten and first grade what they have to do if a shooter come into their school. this is an anomaly, but if this happens more than -- >> we're just hearing from wnbc's jonathan dietz, hess re

and japan, for example, do you think they are going to do it under these circumstances? we are looking at a tremendously difficult long- term problem, short-term problem, and immediate problem. >> actually, america is borrowing money at record low rates and the rest of the world parks their money here. i think we're in a strong position. i think the rational thing to do is to pass the legislation that the senate passed which extends the tax cuts for 98% of the people, then duke it out, and the fact that the claim bear of commerce and the business round table are all coming down on the president's side saying that they agree that the top rate should go up is a powerful shift in alliances, and i think the republicans are going to fold. >> i have to say one thing. the people who are buying our debt is called the federal reserve bank, okay. >> uh-huh. >> their balance sheet has almost quadrupled. by far and away they're buying 70 to 80% of our debt. that's where the money is coming from. they're printing money and giving it to the federal government. >> and the chinese are not buying as mu

the world. look at japan and europe. the japanese government is the glaring war on japanese citizens. it will create inflation. if the japanese citizens start to dump their bonds, they have been a bigger part then japan recently. that is a big problem for us. their euro has been quietly depreciating. if that goes out, that is a much bigger fiscal cliff. if the buyers of treasuries become sellers. liz: there are a lot of "if" in your discussion. the bond markets are still pretty -- nothing from the bottom vigilantes yet. you were a clinton advisor. you saw in the mid- 90s bond yields really spike higher. that is the issue. if we see the economy healing, bond yields could go up. investors say, wait a second, why invest for bond. >> that is the key issue. we have not seen interest rates spike for a simple reason. nobody has confidence in the economy. nobody believes we will have robust economic growth. we could be heading towards a recession. especially given the disappointing christmas sales. i am frankly skeptical about what will happen with our economy either way. i think we will go
